Today I went to the grocery store and bought a crapton of fruit and veggies. I didn't stray from my list except to get a Valentine's Day card and some lube because we're still trying to experiment on the best ways to make things nice and easy. (Her's...erm...well-endowed.) Sorry for that TMI. The only other straying was just buying some tilapia, turkey burgers, and the whole bunch of fruits and veggies. I'm proud of myself. I checked calories, I bought food for the meal I'm going to cook for my boyfriend and I for Valentine's Day. I bought cookie ingredients.
Cookies, yeah. I'm going to bake cookies today. One batch are plain sugar cookies which I'm going to bring to one of his friends when we hang out tomorrow. And the other batch are S'mores Cookies for my boyfriend. I'm going to work really hard tomorrow to not binge but it's going to be hard because we just play video games the entire time.
I lost my driver's license a while back at an anime convention. I totally forgot I didn't have it and so I had to reschedule my interview. Thankfully I got it in for tomorrow. I got my license today. I think I'm going to make it a goal to increasingly look as miserable as possible in my photos for my license. While I was there I stopped in at the tabletop game shop I used to hang out at and play D&D and caught up with the guy who owns it. Next Tuesday one of my old friends who was the DM for my first D&D game goes there to play HeroClix so I'm going to stop in and visit him which will be VERY nice. I miss those guys.
I had to call my step-dad to ask about what to look for when picking mangos and oranges. It was really nice. I love him a lot. He's been the only father figure in my life since my parents got divorced and he filled that role nicely. He's my dad. There's no doubt about it. It made me feel grown up, like someone who just moved out and still needs to call mom or dad to ask for advice. And it also reminded me just how much a father Alan is to me and how much I love him and miss him.
They never got married and they broke up in about 2007 or a bit earlier but he's still my dad and my mom is okay with that. He's been fantastic. I always cry happy tears when I think about and talk about him. He raised me. He accepted me. He helped me be who I am. He showed me it was okay to be a tomboy and he nourished that. Took me to baseball games, went to every game and even practice. He was diagnosed with Hep C and even those the meds made his leg hurt like hell he still sucked it up, never winced, and still took us to games, to the mall, etc.
That was really the highlight of my day. I miss him. He gives backbreaking hugs. He helped toughen me up. He didn't coddle me.
Anyway, I just wanted to share some good news!
